Scenario on the evolution of the arthropod brain. Animation, swf file. Anterior is up. The compound brain of arthropods (sensu Richter et al. [5]) most likely evolved by a fusion of initially separate proto-, deuto- and tritocerebral ganglia. Note that the tripartite brain of arthropods alternatively might have evolved several times independently, as some groups, including branchiopod crustaceans, show a bipartite brain (e.g. [29]).
